REAKING NEWS: Yesterday, Shell announced that it cannot drill in the Alaskan Arctic this year. But the fight isn’t over.
The lease under which several oil companies want to drill in the Chukchi Sea is still current. We need to make sure no oil companies can drill under this lease, and stop the process to sell new leases in the Arctic Ocean.
The Alaskan Arctic is home to hundreds of Alaskan Native communities in addition to wildlife like polar bears, seals and whales.
Send a message to President Obama today, urging him to cancel this lease and stop drilling in the Alaskan Arctic for good.
My cousin is a producer and has this amazing project that she is trying to raise the funds for after a financial backer fell through. Her Production company, Notebook Entertainment, is heading The Polar Project. It’s an expedition to the Arctic Circle to explore the wilderness, document its wildlife and promote its fragile environment. It’s all very exciting and I can’t wait to see the final documentary.
